My desk is fuller than normal today. I want to make a stash of flowers using the Creative Expressions Button Florals and Craftwork Cards Build a Bloom. Both these sets include flowers that are easy to cut out. I want to make some from patterned paper and some from images which I colour myself. As you can see, my Promarkers are out at the moment but I may use sprays and inks too. I started yesterday afternoon but didn't get very far! If you are wondering why I am showing my desk in all its messy glory, pop along to Julia's Fab blog to find out. Have a fab desk hopping day, I will be late visiting today as I am going out for a friends birthday. If the weather is ok, it will be a boat trip and a cream tea! xx

Artful Times is a new challenge blog and their first challenge is to make a tag. Its a first for me too, I have never entered a challenge before so I have made a simple one layer tag for the occasion. The background is inked with Dusty Concord, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick and Mustard Seed Distress Inks. I then sprayed with Solar Gold Glimmer Mist which, unfortunately, you can't see. I masked the top and bottom and inked with Chipped Sapphire and the stamped images are from Marion Emberson with a sentiment from Personal Impressions. There are a couple of days left to send in your entries for the challenge and support this lovely new blog.
